The Michigan Pedaler is excited to announce our Fourth Annual #Pedal4Charity week, set to take place from Sunday, April 5th to Saturday, April 11th. In our previous three years of #Pedal4Charity, we’re happy to report that we’ve helped raise over $35,000 to local non-profit charities and organizations.
As we begin our fifth season in business, it is important for us to have a way to give back to the community and thank the thousands of people who have supported us by riding on our bike and patronizing our business. It’s the best way that we can say “thank you” to the metro-Detroit community, while helping them be able to help the community in the best way possible.
As we do every year, we’ll kick off “Pedaling Season” by hosting our #Pedal4Charity Week from April 5- April 11. We’ll offer up to 50 rides on our bikes for charities to raise money on the bike.
What are some suggested ways you can raise money on The Michigan Pedaler? Here are a few ways that organizations used the bikes over the years:
• Online or In-Person Auction.
• Buy-A-Seat Promotion (selling individual seats on the bike for $25-75 each (up to 15 spots))
• Pledge Program – Selected riders solicit donations like a “Walk-A-Thon” and accumulate pledges from donors for “pedaling” around town.
• Raffle – Organizations sell raffle tickets to raise money for the chance to ride the bike.
This is our way of saying thank you to all of you!
We hope all those who have ridden our bike share this news with their favorite charities. Although we hope to give rides to all applicants, we will review all applications and make sure we can accommodate your needs.
Application Deadline is March 11th. We will reach out to charities selected by March 13th.
To apply, you must complete the following application by March 11th.
